1. I’m happy Doomfist is getting some attention. It’s going to be really nice to see him in games again since he is going to be much more consistent.

He has still crucial bugs that are not even mentioned. His gameplay is broken. Hits still dont register, hitboxes are unconsistent etc.

Plus, Doomfist has other ways to deal with tanks.

Like running away really quickly?
They should wait to release the Mercy Pheonix skin until she's playable again. You could argue it's appropriate at her lowest point as a sign of things to come, but right now it just hurts.

Doomfist actually preforms very well against tanks. He can uppercut Winston out of his bubble and make him a free kill, he can punch Reinhardt through his barrier and drop it, and he can do heavy damage to D.Va through her defense matrix.

Only Orisa and Zarya give him problems but once their abilities are on cooldown it's free game.

LOL!!!!

Blizzard, please reconsider this fix. This can't be a bug.
Since I know someone won't read the bug fixes, here some good ones:

General

- Fixed a bug that caused the mouse cursor to lose focus when using third party overlays (e.g. Discord)
There was a way to easily fix it if happening, but it was time consuming.

Heroes

- Fixed a bug that caused airborne heroes to lose speed when changing direction
You probably couldn't see that, but that problem didn't allow you to reach certain places with Junkrat or Widowmaker for example, if you had to strafe a bit to reach that place.

- Fixed a bug that caused Doomfist’s Rocket Punch to impact with D.Va’s mech before it materialized during her Call Mech ability
A nice fix since there's the chance to kill D.Va before she enters her Mech. Doomfist just couldn't.

- Fixed a bug that prevented Genji from using his Cyber-agility occasionally

- Fixed a bug that prevented Hanzo’s Wall Climb from activating occasionally

- Fixed a bug that caused Mercy to fly in an unintended direction if she was stunned during Guardian Angel
Stun, boop etc caused Mercy to fly a lot and very fast in a direction.

- Fixed a bug that prevented Mercy from destroying breakables she collides with in her flight path when using Guardian Angel
I didn't know it was a bug, but it looks like she should just pass through breakables, like Reinhardt for example.

- Fixed a bug that caused Mercy’s Valkyrie flight controls to not be precise when using Resurrect
Even if Resurrect after the nerf gave Mercy more stability when exiting the ress, it was sloppy if she was flying during ress.

- Fixed a bug that allowed Sombra to block Reaper’s Death Blossom if she used her Marioneta emote
I just find it hilarious

- Fixed a bug that allowed projectiles to sometimes penetrate Reinhardt’s Barrier Field
You can see many videos on YouTube showing that problem. Just a QoL fix, pretty nice.

- Fixed a bug that caused Reinhardt to knock back a target instead of pinning them if he collided with an enemy at the start of his Charge
I don't know how many times it happened.

- Fixed a bug that prevented Sombra’s EMP from canceling an enemy Sombra’s Hack if it was in progress
Don't misunderstand it, they are talking about Sombra while she's hacking someone or something.

Maps

- Fixed a bug that caused the UI to show a fraction of a meter to go when reaching checkpoints on Escort and Assault/Escort maps
Especially on Junker Town, it happened a lot. Check YouTube videos to see the problem.

Wow, they swapped numbers in Doomfist's handcannon. Took them long enough.
Much buff, huge damage.

It’s actually good for doomfist. The main thing he lacks is consistency, so giving him more consistency helps him greatly.
It's a bit of a nerf to doomfist as well against tanks since he suffers more against armor though better against smaller targets.

Eh, it's not really a buff.


It's the D.Va change once again!

33 damage to armored heroes instead of 36. Big deal. Headshots and the fact more of your pellets will land on average will make up for that.

Ooh I hope this fixes Lucio's wallride jump that the movement change affected.
I thought that Pharah would look absolutely amazing with a chinese dragon skin! Maybe she gets the azure dragon skin? She is the only hero I can imagine getting a skin like that.

I also love that we can now change skins before the game starts, I have so many skins to show :-)

Especially if you start with RP, it will (more likely) remove all the armor at once, so damage reduction might not be taken into account (not that much).

He will be more reliable against small targets.. the more pellets you hit, the best it is!
